STONE OLD GUARDIAN BARLEY WINE
If you fancy yourself a real bona fide beer geek, then you probably already
know that 2010 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine started hitting store shelves on
February 15th. As a bona fide beer geek who also happens to be a word geek (or
maybe just a geek in general), I often find myself tirelessly scouring the label
of every new beer I encounter in search of every last juicy bit of
information–every last phrase, word, vowel, letter, and picture–desperately
trying to extract as much meaning as I can about life, love, time, space, and
existence. To my continued dismay, my efforts never prove quite as revelatory as
I hope. Turns out I may need to search for the meaning of life somewhere other
than in a beer label (though Greg may disagree).
If you’re anything like me, you may just stumble across an exciting little
tidbit at the end of the bottle notes on the Stone Old Guardian
Barley Wine label. While it doesn’t reveal the meaning of life, it does reveal
the meaning of leadership according to Greg Koch.
